The gripping new psychological thriller from Camilla Way, author of Watching Edie and The Lies We Told

A terrifying attack…

When she was just eight years old, Viv Swift witnessed something no one should have to see. She looked on, horrified, as her beautiful teenage sister, Ruby, was brutally murdered.

A dangerous killer behind bars…

When Viv was found, hiding in a wardrobe, all she would say was a single word – ‘Jack’. Her testimony of that shocking day helped put Ruby’s boyfriend, Jack, behind bars.

A past that refuses to stay buried…

In the years since, Viv has tried to move on and provide a stable life for her and her daughter. But someone is convinced Viv lied about what really happened that day. And they’re determined that now, she will pay the ultimate price…

Perfect for fans of Clare Mackintosh, Cara Hunter and Ruth Ware
